The Irish Tenors
Music Matters, 2001
How Are Things In Glocca Morra?
Long a fan of Irish music, I have turned to a series of artists to satiate my appetite. Bing Crosby and John McCormick have been succeeded by the Irish Tenors. This CD has a bit more of an Irish American theme as "Isle Of Hope, Isle Of Tears" and "God Bless America" illustrate. Interspersed among these tunes are traditional Irish tunes such as "Macushla" and "Croppy Boy", along with newer ...
On the Way to Bethlehem (Music of the Medieval Pilgrim)
Superb blend of Western and Middle Eastern Early Music
This album captures the influences of all the places that a pilgrim from Europe might encounter on the way to the Holy Land (Israel). The first track (Dinaresade) opens with a very lively and catchy Syrian traditional tune. While this track has a very Arabic feel to it, the next song employs bagpipes in a traditional 14th century English tune. The third track provides another lively woodwind ...
Vivaldi: Armida (Vivaldi Edition)
Naive Records, 2010
Feedback on Armida
I'm not reviewing this as an opera because I listen to this genre as a more of a vocal concerto or musical expression than a dramatic storyline, though I think the emotions involved are universal regardless of language. Naturally I like the solo and duo arias, and even the arioso-recitativo accompagnato, however I found the coros to be unappealing this time; maybe it was the way they were ...
Boleros: Coleccion De Oro
Sad Clown Bad Summer Number 9

Serie De Oro: Grandes Exitos
Waldo De Los Rios
EMI Europe Generic, 2000
A Collection of Cool Clasical Music with a Beat
"Serie de Oro: Grandes Exitos of Waldo De Los Rios" is a masterfully arranged collection of moving and stirring classical music. De Los Rios is a gifted arranger that adds beats and instrumentations to enhance and expand these compositionsinto a very modern feeling. I discovered his work on a late 60s early 70s LP called "Symphonias" and I've been addicted to his marvelous music. His style of ...
Nacional Records, 2010
Oro is Golden
It is Regaeton. I like every cut on this album. Maybe the 1st 2 not as much but the rest of it is Golden.
Oro: Grandes Exitos
Universal Latino, 1999
I had purchased this item on tape years ago and decided that I wanted to purcase it on DVD. To me, this is the greatest DVD I own.

Digitally remastered two-fer containing a pair of solo albums from the former Traffic member: Mariposa de Oro (1978) and Old Crest On A New Wave (1980). From Mariposa de Oro came his biggest hit single, 'We Just Disagree', which was a #19 U.S. hit. 21 tracks total. Beat Goes On. 2010.
She Wolf: Deluxe Edition (CD & DVD)
The DVD won't work on Win XP
The music is fine and the CD plays as expected. However I tried running the DVD on Win XP machines with Media Player v9, v10 & v11. The DVD would not play with any of these programs. It freezes on the first frame. The DVD plays fine on a MAC running OS 10.4. The DVD plays fine on a standard DVD player.
Rough Guide to the Music of Argentina
World Music Network, 2004
A Beautiful Introduction to the music of Argentina
Before I heard this album one of the only genres I was familiar with was tango. There are actually other beautiful and haunting styles of music like the upbeat milonga (similar to the tango, but with a musical resolution unlike the "frustrated" final note associated with tango) and ballads. This album was a great introduction to the variation of styles played in contemporary Argentina as well ...

Epoca De Oro 1: Mienteme
Big World, 2008
En Espanol: Serie De Oro 
Sony U.S. Latin, 1991
Roberto Carlos 'e o Rey de MPB (Roberto Carols is the King of Musica Popular de Brasil). Smooth, romantic, beautiful songs, in either Portuguese or Spanish. I recommend any of his discs.
Early Music for Meditation
Classical Music for Meditation
I've only heard one track, but . . .
The only track I've heard is track 1 (Mevlana) and I thought it sounded very authentic. Based on having heard only this one track, I would give this five stars. I'm gonna guess that the rest of the album preserves the authenticity I heard in this track.
L'Assedio Di Corinto (Comp)
Opera D'oro, 2001
A primadonna showpiece of dubious style
I've been fascinated by this 1969 production since I read an interview of the great Renata Tebaldi who performed the opera early in her career and who basically dismissed the way Rossini's music was performed in this Scala production. She claimed that by the time he wrote it, Rossini wanted to move away from florid music. Initially I thought Tebaldi was excusing herself for not performing the ...
Tsar's Bride (Complete) (Comp)
Opera D'oro, 2008
The best tsraskaya nevesta ever done
This is by far the best version of this wonderful opera. Don't make a mistake, don't buy Gergiev's version....I bought it...I had this on LP and now I'm happy to have this on CD. Terrific! The sound? It is ok...It sounds R_K very much! and Galina and Irina are awesome! Martin

Wagner: The Ring
Opera D'oro, 2006
The other reviews comment on how great the performance is. I just have to add that this set is beautifully packaged in a compact, 1-inch depth, clamshell, board box with gorgeous images on each CD disc. The days of multiple, plastic, 4-disc, clumsey CD cases are gone. Although there is no libretto included, it does include an insert with the cast and synopsis for each opera, again beautifully ...
